1983, Jefferson National Forest, Virginia: Man Sees Bigfoot 3 Times

Timothy Jones was driving through the Jefferson National Forest when he saw a dark figure lurking near the side of the road. He slammed on the breaks and pulled over. Jones thought the man needed help. But when he jumped out of his truck the man was gone.

Jones called out but there was no response. So he got back into his truck and headed down the road. About a half mile later, Jones sees the dark figure again. He gets a better look. He notices that the man is less a man and more a Bigfoot.

Again, Jones slams on the breaks. This time, he throws the truck in reverse, instead of jumping out. But just as he reached the spot where the creature stood, it was gone. Jones got out of the truck slowly. He saw the huge feet impressions left by the monster, which convinced him that what he saw was, in truth, a bigfoot.

Jones shook his head and thought to himself that no one was going to believe this. Just as he laughed at himself, he had to swerve the truck in order not to ram the big hairy Bigfoot that ran across the road in front of him. The brakes squealed and the truck fishtailed as Jones brought it to a stop.

All he saw of the Bigfoot after that was swaying branches from where the Bigfoot dove back into the dense forest on the opposite side of the road.

Jones was right, none of his friends believed that he saw a Bigfoot three times in one night!

1989, Dragon Run State Forest, Virgina: Hunters See Bigfoot Eyes

Alvin Carter and his brother Jamie and their father Frank had spent the day hunting in Dragon Run Forest. They did not come across any game all day. Frank seeing the disappointment in his son’s eyes, came up with a novel solution. He went into their cooler and set up  row of soda pop cans along a fallen tree.

Then he let the boys take turns shooting at the cans. The younger boy, Alvin, was a much better shot than his older brother Jamie. After Alvin hit three of the six soda cans lined up, Frank told Alvin he had to let his brother hit the other half.

While Frank helped Jamie with his accuracy, Alvin grew bored watching his brother miss the targets. Alvin started looking through the sight on his rifle, scanning the scrubs behind his father and brother. Just as he was about to put the gun down and ask if they could head home, he saw something that totally startled him.

He saw two glowing red eyes staring at the trio. Alvin figured the eyes to be about 35 yards from them. Alvin tried to get the attention of his father, but was only answered with annoyance. Alvin watched the glowing red eyes watch them. Then he clearly saw a Bigfoot stand up, shake itself like a dog, and walk off in the other direction.

No amount of trying could convince Alvin’s brother or father of what he saw. Plus Alvin was warned that if he mentioned it to his mother, Alvin would not be allowed hunting ever again.

2012, Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia: Turkey Hunting Bigfoot


2012, Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia: Turkey Hunting Bigfoot 

Caleb Sarka and his Grandfather Jim were walking along a ridge near Smith Mountain Lake. On side there was a low grassy area. On the other, a steep slope. Caleb wanted to try climbing up the slope, but his Grandfather said no. It rained and he did not want to take a muddy boy back home.

As they discussed this, Caleb lost interest. Distracted by the group of turkeys. Feeling bad for the boy’s sense of adventure, his grandfather suggested Caleb to see how close he could get to a turkey. Caleb bet he could just about touch one. His grandfather chuckled as the turkeys flew away just as Caleb started down the slope.

Caleb’s look of disappointment quickly changed to surprise. Both boy and grandfather heard a terrifying scream. More like a growling hoot, the sound came from all around them. Caleb ran back up the ridge. His grandfather said it must be kids trying to scare them. Caleb was not convinced but agreed.

They walked on. About five minutes later, they stopped dead in their tracks by a loud thundering noise. Then the ground shook. Like when construction crews drop something on the road they are going to dig up. Caleb and his grandfather agreed that something weird was happening.

Just as they left the woods, the hooting screams got more intense. The anger conveyed was fierce. Caleb is convinced that the turkeys he scared off were being hunted by several bigfoot. They were really mad that he cost them their supper. Caleb’s grandfather agrees that whatever they heard was odd, indeed.

1990, George Washington National Forest, Virginia: Bigfoot Mother Teaching Road Safety

Bigfoot Tracker, Jason Wrote, was out looking for Bigfoot tracks.  He spent the morning without any luck, but after lunch, he opted to switch directions and moved south from his original plan.

A few hours into his new route, Wrote stumbled upon a mother and baby Bigfoot.  The pair stood in a very dense alcove of shrubs near the side of Thorny Creek Mountain Road.  Wrote crept into the nearest bush he could.  From his hidden spot, he watched the mother Bigfoot pick at the fur of its baby Bigfoot.

After a few minutes of playful preening, the mother Bigfoot’s attitude changed.  She became very serious.  She grunted and motioned with her arms, the wet hair of her underarms flapped.  Then she took a step forward, inched toward the slope of the Road.  She looked up to the left, then craned her head to the right.

Wrote realized he was watching a safety lesson, as the mother Bigfoot instructed the baby Bigfoot on the proper way to cross the road.  The longer Wrote watched, the more evidence he collected to support his theory.  The mother Bigfoot taught the baby Bigfoot several different ways to approach the Road.  What to do if a car is coming and how to handle being caught in the headlights.

All these are important lessons for all children, whether human or Bigfoot!
